A Lovely Weekend & Giveaway Info & Twitter

Two quick announcements: I have a giveaway going on at Fairly Fabulous until tomorrow at noon pacific time. Check it out!

Also, I have twitter now! Won't you please follow me? I think I'm really going to enjoy this tweeting shinbiz. Follow me @MyGirlishWhims

Just thought I'd share some pictures from the weekend! I started working full time for the summer the day after I got back from college and haven't had a day off until this weekend. It was so nice to have some chill time!

Fiancé and I had our 2 year anniversary this past Thursday. With me blatantly telling him slightly hinting at the fact I would appreciate flowers, I got 24 roses at work, 1 for each month we had been together. *squee*

Here they are driving home with me for the weekend. Buckle up kids, it's the law.

We went out to the Melting Pot for dinner, and ordered the WHOLE SHEBANG!! Normally we are just cheap-oh and get cheese and chocolate fondue, but we sprang for the whole meal deal tonight. Maybe because FIANCÉ GOT A JOB OFFER this week for a real live big boy job! He's been working at Best Buy since college, but got an offer to work full time in the IT department of an engineering firm. Paid vacation, benefits and everything. Now we won't have to live in a box after we get married. Happy happy!

We got this little cutie (heart you Melting Pot peeps. even if you suck out our souls errr wallets every time we visit):

Not our best pictures ever. Oh well. It was yumbo.

Then Saturday fiancé and I went to a little banquet for the Civil Air Patrol (group he volunteers at and gets to do manly things with and feel important). Banquet was boring, but at least I got to dress up pretty! Like how we match? Yeah, I'm that girl who matches her significant other whenever possible. Don't judge.

Lovely weekend :)  PS. I'll be posting engagement pictures this week sometime. Yay!!


  1. You are funny. Love your quips. And I too heart the Melting Pot. My fave restaurant. If it didn't cost over $100 everytime, I would eat there all the time. The food is so worth it. Their lobster is to die for!

  2. Hi - I am asking for fellow bloggers to visit my site in hopes that we can find a match for a young girl that desperately needs a bone marrow transplant. Would be great if you could visit today too. Thank you. Kelly
